Ulster University Equestrian is open to all students; you do not need to own a horse to try the sport or to compete . We host lessons every Monday, and compete in two competitions through the year, the Irish Intervarsity and the Irish Tetrathlon Championships. We also organise social events throughout the year.
- Tetrathlons Running, swimming, shooting and showjumping You must partake in all four exercises over two days.
- Irish Intervarsity; Dressage, Showjumping and Prix Caprilli. You are only permitted to compete in one of these disciplines. Prix Caprilli is only applicable to riders who have never ridden at the Irish Intervarsity before and who have never ridden at an affiliated level. This is a small dressage course with small raised poles throughout.
